Working with others
Wild Sheep Foundation Alberta is proud to be involved with many different conservation organizations in the province of Alberta. WSFA members also sit on various boards and committees, sharing our voice with other groups. Working together only makes us stronger as we ensure the future of wildlife in our province. Some of these include:

  • National Wild Sheep Foundation - to enhance wild sheep populations, promote professional wildlife management, educate the public about wild sheep and the conservation benefits of hunting, encourage fair chase hunting, and protect sportsmen's rights
  • W.I.S.E. Foundation (Wildlife/In Trust/Safekeeping/Education) - to assist in the administration and delivery of Alberta's Conservation Education programs
  • Alberta Hunter Education Instructors' Association - promoting the highest standard of sportsman behaviour
  • Hunting for Tomorrow - Strengthening the work of other organizations in Alberta
  • Alberta Outdoors Coalition - to have a voice on outdoor decisions involving land and wildlife
  • Program Advisory Committee (PAC) - to review, rank and allocate funding raised through the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Alberta Sustainable Resource Development

Charitable Donations
Each March, WSFA holds an annual fundraising banquet where donated goods and services are sold by live and silent auctions and raffles.

If requested, those businesses or individuals who donate the goods and services will receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of their contribution. Also if requested, the purchaser(s) can receive a tax receipt but only for the amount of the purchase price that is over and above the fair market value of the goods and services being sold.

Funds raised go to many worthwhile projects. WSFA is a Registered Charity. For more information, please contact the WSFA office at 403-845-5544.

"Together we can Ensure the Future of Wildlife"

In North America, wild sheep have diverged into two extant species - Dall Sheep that occupy Alaska and northwestern Canada, and Bighorn Sheep that range from southern Canada to Mexico (pictured).


Newborn lambs weigh from 8 to 10 pounds (3.6 to 4.5 kg) and can walk within hours. Most births occur in the first 2 weeks of the lambing period (May). Lambs are weaned when they reach 4-6 months.
